The Legacy of Agent Orange: A Conversation about Risks and Responsibility
Conversation between US historian and pharmacist Amy Hay, political activist and freelance trainer Nga Le, who grew up in Germany and was born in Vietnam, and Christian Lahnstein, a member of an international reinsurance company. The discussion centers on the destructive force of Agent Orange and the fact that the impact and consequences of this herbicide have met with such little concern in the international arena. Agent Orange got its name from the orange band that marked the storage barrels of this herbicide mixture. It was used by the US military to defoliate the jungles during the Vietnam War. The three interviewees came together in Munich on several occasions to discuss their research and thoughts with environmental historian Christof Mauch of the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society.
